Santiago - Muxia

Camino from Santiago to Muxia

There are some miraculous stories in Muxía, such as the apparition of the Holy Mary in mortal flesh. In the Punta da Barca (Muxía) there were at least three sanctuaries throughout history.

The last shrine was initially constructed in 1976, and it is still in an amazingly beautiful environment. It preserves the stones that tradition has linked to the hull, the sail, and the rudder of the stone boat that brought Holy Mary to this land to encourage Apostle Saint James in his preaching. The temple is very frugal and was finished in this century. It displays two towers and a superb baroque altarpiece with a Lady chapel.

Several Pilgrim who reach Finisterre, continue their journey north until Muxia to visit this mystical town.
